Revoke-CsOUPermission

 

Topic Last Modified: 2014-07-01

Revokes the Lync Server management permissions that have been granted on an Active Directory organizational unit (OU). This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

Revoke-CsOUPermission -ObjectType <User | Computer | InetOrgPerson | Contact | AppContact | Device> -OU <String> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Domain <Fqdn>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-GlobalCatalog <Fqdn>] [-Report <String>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The command shown in Example 1 revokes user management permissions (-ObjectType "user") for the Redmond OU in the domain litwareinc.com.

Revoke-CsOUPermission -OU "ou=Redmond,dc=litwareinc,dc=com" -ObjectType "user"

In Example 2, three different management permissions (user, contact, and inetOrgPerson objects) are removed from the Redmond OU in the domain litwareinc.com.

Revoke-CsOUPermission -OU "ou=Redmond,dc=litwareinc,dc=com" -ObjectType "user","contact","inetOrgPerson"

If you have locked down your Active Directory domain (that is, if you have disabled permission inheritance) then the domain preparation that takes place when you install Lync Server will not be able to add the permissions needed to manage users, computers, contacts, application contacts, and InetOrg persons. (Enterprise administrators and domain administrators will still be able to manage these objects, but no one else, including members of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group, will have management permissions.) In that case, you will need to use the Grant-CsOUPermission cmdlet to grant the required security groups the required permissions. This must be done on a container-by-container basis for each Active Directory container that includes Lync Server user accounts.

Permissions granted by using the Grant-CsOUPermission cmdlet can later be removed by using Revoke-CsOUPermission. If you run the Revoke-CsOUPermission cmdlet against an OU you will then need to be an enterprise administrator or a domain administrator in order to manage Lync Server users in that OU.

Who can run this cmdlet: You must be a domain administrator in order to run the Revoke-CsOUPermission cmdlet locally. To return a list of all the role-based access control (RBAC) roles this cmdlet has been assigned to (including any custom RBAC roles you have created yourself) run the following command from the Windows PowerShell prompt:

Get-CsAdminRole | Where-Object {$_.Cmdlets –match "Revoke-CsOUPermission"}

 

Parameter Required Type Description

ObjectType

Required

Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Deployment.ObjectType

Type of object covered by these permissions. Valid values are:

User

Computer

Contact

AppContact

InetOrgPerson

To revoke permissions to multiple object types in the same command, separate the object types by using commas: -ObjectType "user","computer","contact".

OU

Required

System.String

Distinguished name of the OU where permissions are to be removed. For example: -OU "ou=Redmond,dc=litwareinc,dc=com".You can only remove permissions from a single OU per command.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command.

Domain

Optional

Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Deploy.Fqdn

Name of the domain where the OU is located. If this parameter is not included the Revoke-CsOUPermission cmdlet will look for the OU in the current domain.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Deploy.Fqdn

Enables administrators to specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller to be used when running the Revoke-CsOUPermission cmdlet. If not specified, the cmdlet will use the first available domain controller.

Force

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Suppresses the display of any non-fatal error message that might occur when running the command.

GlobalCatalog

Optional

Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Deploy.Fqdn

Fully qualified domain name of a global catalog server in your domain. This parameter is not required if you are running the Revoke-CsOUPermission cmdlet on a computer with an account in your domain.

Report

Optional

System.String

Enables you to specify a file path for the log file created when the cmdlet runs. For example: -Report "C:\Logs\OUPermissions.html"

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Describes what would happen if you executed the command without actually executing the command.

None. The Revoke-CsOUPermission cmdlet does not accept pipelined input.

The Revoke-CsOUPermission cmdlet does not return any objects or values.
